Unfortunately training a foal and a couple of green horses doesn't make you a professional trainer - to become known in the horse world as a reputable trainer, you will need to train and break numerous horses before you'll even get a look in. All horses are different, and you might be lucky with the foal and have a very quiet, trainable one. But if a client sends you something that is genuinely dangerous and a very big challenge, you will lack the experience to deal with it.
I would advise that you keep honing and building on your skills, work with multiple horses, spend as much time as you can with reputable trainers and when you've got that experience, start offering your services. And I'm talking years - like when you're in your 20's.
Yeah, I love working with hard horses but I've never done it from the start with breaking them, so I understand what your saying.
Alright, I think that's what will end up happening anyways lol.
I am helping my friend who trains horses with a bunch of his Welsh ponies because he needs alot trained and I will help him for free. And also my "riding coach" (my dads friend) who trains horses and teaches me will also help me learn the tricks of the trade.
